The Brothers Coen


Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

On its surface, it was a story often filmed: the wayward wife, the sympathetic stranger, the jealous husband, the killer-for-hire. But the utterly unique combination of cinematic flair, oddball characters, unexpected comedy, and gruesome violence made Blood Simple (1984) a critical smash, and established Joel and Ethan Coen as an original force in American independent film.

About the Author

Ryan P. Doom is a freelance writer and teacher.


"This study of the cinema of Joel and Ethan Coen examines the theme of violence that runs through the brothers' work via chapters that scrutinize the motives, thoughts, and actions of the principal characters in each of the Coens' films. In the world depicted in the films, suggests the author, violence always has devastating, unintended consequences on the characters, both for those who live by violence and those who are just bystanders to the violent acts of others. Covering all of the Coens' films except the most recent (2009's A Serious Man), this engagingly written book will interest both film scholars and cinema fans." - Reference & Research Book News
